Our competiton is at Grover Cleveland on February 7th, 2015.

The Science Olympiad is a competitive science club/team. We train throughout the year in order to compete in the NYC Regional competition occurring in early February. We compete against the best schools in NYC. Competition categories cover all areas of science including earth science biology chemistry physics engineering scientific inquiry and others.

There are three main types of categories or events. The first type is more test-based which means that students train for this event by studying taking practice tests and becoming an expert in one specific field of science. The second type is a performance category in which the student is asked to do something (usually lab-oriented) on the actual competition day. The last type is engineering or building categories in which the students pre-design and construct items like planes, robots, towers, and catapults that are brought with the team and judged on the day of the competition.
